Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1961) HBase EC2 scripts
Date Fri, 13 Nov 2009 02:04:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1961?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12777330#action_12777330
] 

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-1961:
---------------------------------------

@stack: The former: You need both the EC2 API and AMI tools (http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/entry.jspa?externalID=351
, http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/entry.jspa?externalID=368&categoryID=88)
installed and on the path. For Ubuntu, "apt-get install ec2-ami-tools".  The latter: Must
be something dumb I did. Let me check.

> Attached tarball is a clone of the Hadoop EC2 scripts, modified significantly to start
up a HBase storage only cluster on top of HDFS backed by instance storage. 
> Tested with the HBase 0.20 branch but should work with trunk also. Only the AMI create
and launch scripts are tested. Will bring up a functioning HBase cluster. 
> Do "create-hbase-image c1.xlarge" to create an x86_64 AMI, or "create-hbase-image c1.medium"
to create an i386 AMI.  Public Hadoop/HBase 0.20.1 AMIs are available:
>     i386: ami-c644a7af
>     x86_64: ami-f244a79b
> launch-hbase-cluster brings up the cluster: First, a small dedicated ZK quorum, specifiable
in size, default of 3. Then, the DFS namenode (formatting on first boot) and one datanode
and the HBase master. Then, a specifiable number of slaves, instances running DFS datanodes
and HBase region servers.  For example:
> {noformat}
>     launch-hbase-cluster testcluster 100 5
> {noformat}
> would bring up a cluster with 100 slaves supported by a 5 node ZK ensemble.
> We must colocate a datanode with the namenode because currently the master won't tolerate
a brand new DFS with only namenode and no datanodes up yet. See HBASE-1960. By default the
launch scripts provision ZooKeeper as c1.medium and the HBase master and region servers as
c1.xlarge. The result is a HBase cluster supported by a ZooKeeper ensemble. ZK ensembles are
not dynamic, but HBase clusters can be grown by simply starting up more slaves, just like
Hadoop. 
> hbase-ec2-init-remote.sh can be trivially edited to bring up a jobtracker on the master
node and task trackers on the slaves.
